statement

The paper identifies products that have received substantial trade concessions as a result of the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA), which would otherwise carry a tarrif rate of 15% or more when exported to the USA. It explores Botswana\'s exports for the period 1998-2000 and identifies AGOA qualified products already being exported to the USA. Main findings are that cheese, footwear and apparel productswhich cover a wide range of products have the greatest concessions. Apparel products dominate the list of Botswana\'s exports the USA that are eligible for AGOA. An extension of Least Developed Country (LDC) status to Botswana would yield more profit from exporting apparel products.
